We have Always Lived in the Castle

Shirley Jackson

This is a family mystery in the mould of Salinger’s Glass family: the characters are quirky misfits and the tone is deliciously twee, macabre and darkly comic.  The narrator at the heart of the novel is disturbingly oblique, and – partly – herein lies the intrigue.  A murder mystery like no other.  This novel has been selected for July’s book club so come and get your copy now!
